Property SummaryAn attractive cottage set in a quiet location in a desirable hamlet near the medieval town of Somerton.
Recently refurbished , Well House has an attractive light filled sitting room with full heigh apex ceiling, french doors into the garden and a new big window.
The kitchen diner has a brand new light coloured Howdens kitchen and real oak flooring with plenty of space for a dining table. The house is of the form of a traditional Somerset long house with rooms leading off from one another on the ground floor. The entrance from the road side is via a closed porch which leads into the spacious hallway with door into the kitchen and stairway. Upstairs are two bedrooms and family bathroom with shower over the bath.
A farm gate leads off the quiet lane into a large area of gravel which would provide ample parking for lots of cars. Closer to the house are some raised beds and the sitting room opens out onto a paved terrace.
Well House is well located in the pretty Hamlet of Hurcot set in rolling hills near the medieval town of Somerton, originally the county town of Somerset and before that, possibly the capital of Wessex. Its focal point is the wide 17th Century Market Square with a Buttercross in the centre. The parish church, dedicated to St. Michael, is quite plain externally but contains one of the finest wooden roofs in the county carved by the monks at Muchelney Abbey.
Somerton offers all the usual amenities of a market town and has a variety of independent shops and a small independent supermarket and regular markets. For more shopping, “Clark’s village” in Street offers a wealth of retail opportunities with more shopping and local amenities to be found in nearby Glastonbury, Wells and Castle Cary. For further shopping and recreational activities, Bath, Bristol, Wells and Yeovil are all within about an hour’s drive.
Local schools include King Ina Primary in Somerton, near by Keinton Mandeville primary, Butleigh C of E primary school and Huish Episcopi School of Science and Crispin School Street. Independent schools include Millfield in nearby Street, the Taunton schools, Perrot hill and the Sherborne schools. There is a well regarded sixth form college at nearby Street, plus others in Yeovil and Taunton.
There are good transport links to London and the South west via the A303. Castle Cary railway station, just about 10 miles away, offers an excellent direct rail service to London in less than two hours.
The house is attached on two sides to the neighbouring property.
Services: private drainage, Electricity and water. Oil CH.
Hurcot can be found close to the junction of the B3153 and B3151. It is off the former and the hamlet is in the form of a loop with Well House clearly recognisable from our photos near a bend in the road.
